What a great afternoon experience with my guide! Given the covid influence, I wasn't sure whether tours still exist or not. It turned out to be one of my favorite day since moved to this city last year. A perfect balance between tea& dessert and walking through old concession neigbourhood. Different from my western taste, it surprised me a lot about locals' flavor. Highly recommend if you're into culture, food and local life.

Good tour. Awesome guide

Did the food. Found this tour to be repetitive. Did not get that impression from the advertisement.

Lu was an amazing guide! He was very friendly, knowledgeable and funny. The wide variety of food and teas were delicious and excellent! The locations were certainly carefully selected. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Shanghai!
